Mayor Adrian Perkins and Police Chief Ben Raymond walked through Caddo Heights today to promote community policing.
“I can get to know these officers outside of the badge and know there’s a real person there,” Raymond says. “Are there any concerns that the police should can help them address or the neighborhood. Some questions they would like to ask.”
They believe it’s a step in the right direction of giving the community a safe space to give any tips they may have.
“People really appreciate that,” Perkins said. “To see the mayor and the police chief at their front door to address their concerns. People really appreciate that.”
